So this is basically saying no Seasonic/Corsair is good for 3080 without having to worry  a shut down midgame ? awesome So what's left under 400? The goofy upside down Thor that I cant use any of its cool aesthetics

Corsair units are one of the more trusted platforms for Ampere cards.. and no, Corsair PSUs are not made by Seasonic that seems to be a heavy myth out there, especially on reddit.

Only one Corsair is listed, and that's the Seasonic made "AX" series.

RTX3060 wouldn't trip anything. It is a decent PSU.

I've been out of the game for about 7 years.

 

What's the 2021 equivalent of the Corsair AX760?

HX750, but you'd be fine with RM/RMx too. And if you plan to reuse it for upgraded builds in the next 7 years too, it would probably be a good idea to get a 850/1000W version. PCIe 5 power connector supports up-to sustained 600W power draw and nVidia 12-pin (hich is essentially the same thing without auxiliary 4-pin) already supports 500W, who knows if GPU manufacturers wouldn't eventually go all-in on that.

I see the EVGA BQ 700W on the C tier but not the EVGA BQ 750W. Does it belong to the same tier?

Any versions of EVGA BQ are there in the same position.

Honestly, no idea. It might've been just not gilded back after splitting off the rest of Focus models (which had problems with Vega). But really, i'm not comfortable with gilding it, it's a relatively budget model to the rest of tier A gold units there. I'm fine with recommending it if it's cheap enough but it's not as good as say Corsair RM-x and i want to reflect that even if it means some degree of subjectivity. I also considered adding a requirement for an MCU with properly programmed fan control for tier A gold units, but then, Seasonic Prime units lack it too, and un-gilding them would probably be deemed more controversial than not gilding Focus by some. Even if i'm personally completely fine with that, we don't really need more drama here.

I have a suggestion: can you please add the latest ATX version that each unit complies, maybe in the "units index" tab?

I am wondering what ATX versions of the popular PSUs like RMx(2018), RMx(2021), HX, Leadex III gold, one seasonic focus and prime

Anybody using the Silverstone VIVA Series 650W 80+ GOLD SMPS SST-VA650-G and Silverstone VIVA Series 750W 80+ GOLD SMPS SST-VA750-G units? How good are they?

would be nice to know if the PSU I am buying is compatible with the latest sleep modes.. I really hate all the "wake up" problems... I experienced enough. 

By the way I found that Leadex III gold is 2.32 compatible, from the box. Focus does not say on the box.

your sarcasm is too obvious here but I am talking about the future possibilities. PSUs are supposed to last 10 years.

I'm not being sarcastic.  Knowing if the PSU has the correct T1 and T3 timings to support MSM is a reasonable inquiry. 

 

Of course, for now you can just see if a particular review calls out what supervisor IC it's using.

what happens when more systems use that "advanced sleep mode" in ATX v2.52 and PSUs don't comply?

Will we get to choose among different modes of sleeps? Do we lose sleeping entirely?

Yes.  You simply disable it in the BIOS.

Just how high is the transient power draw on an OC 3080Ti? I'm assuming 1000w would be sufficient for that paired with a 12700k right?
